* Parodied in ''ItsAVeryMerryMuppetChristmasMovie''. First Rizzo tells Gonzo he sold his rare cheese to buy a crystal petri dish for Gonzo's mould collection, but Gonzo sold the mould to buy a diamond tipped cheese slicer ("Did you keep the receipt?"). Then Beaker sold his autographed periodic table to buy a stand for Bunsen's electron microscope, but Bunsen sold his microscope to buy Beaker rare mutagenic elements. Then Sal Manella explains that he sold his motorbike to get Johnny Fiama a solid gold record player. Much to Sal's outrage, Johnny's response is an offhand "Oh. Thanks, Sal."

* Bert and Ernie did this in the 1978 TV special ''ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet''. Bert trades his paperclip collection to Mr. Hooper for a soap dish for Ernie to put his rubber duckie in. Ernie meanwhile trades his rubber duckie for a fancy box to hold the paperclip collection. Of course, Mr. Hooper stops by the apartment on his way home and gives them back the items they traded.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' had a great parody of this story- the wife naturally sells her hair to buy a chain for her husband's pocket watch. When we see the husband trying to buy his wife some combs, the shopkeeper suggests he sell his watch to afford them... only for the husband to point out that his watch is an antique in perfect working condition and is worth way, way more then a pair of combs, no matter how fancy. "What are they, solid gold?"

"What are they, solid gold?"gold?" [[note]]Actually, it was an assortment of expensive hair accessories that was ''referred to'' as "the Combs" (it was more than just combs), and the story says they were "pure tortoise shell, with jeweled rims", making the gift potentially even ''more'' valuable than gold ones.[[/note]]
